Rowing is a classic sport which can be pursued in either a competitive or recreational way. Rowers can either be part of a crew and experience the ultimate in team activity, or enjoy the skills of single sculling. Rowing is a fun and satisfying activity with the obvious attraction of improving health, fitness and strength. Some regard the sport as a means of getting fit, others get fit to improve their performance.

Bradford Amateur Rowing Club welcomes all those who wish to learn to row providing you are over 13 years old, in good health and can swim 50 metres in light clothing.

The Club has several British Rowing qualified coaches who can get you started and develop your skills. Adults complete a Taster Session so they can have a flavour of the sport and are then invited to join the Club and start the Learn to Row course, which will develop all the skills and techniques introduced during their Taster Session.

For more information on Junior beginners, please see the Junior page.

There is currently a waiting list for adult beginners.  Prospective adults can join the waiting list by emailing the Club Secretary with your name, date of birth and contact details.
